The European Patent Office (EPO) will host its annual “East meets West” forum on Asian patent information again on 6/7 April 2017 in Vienna, Austria.

This will be your opportunity to:

  • meet experts from Asian patent offices
  • get an update about developments in Asian patent information
  • chat with providers on new products and services for accessing Asian data

During the two-day event, participants will get a comprehensive update on hot topics such as new technologies, machine translations and developments at Asian offices. We will cover Japan, China and Korea, but we will put the spotlight also on emerging markets, such as India, Arabic countries and BRICS. As usual, we will offer optional training sessions in the run-up to the forum on Wednesday, 5 April 2017.

Register now or find our more on our website. (Registration deadline: 24 March 2017.) Why don’t you visit our photo gallery or read our article in Patent Information News 2/2016 for some impressions of last year’s event!
